to make our city great. it's not just doing a great process, it's also sharing the vision that we are participating in building a great society and you should see more and more of the philanthropic goals. this is what makes me happy not only to be here because even though we are within a half mile of 300,000 jobs from a half mile of this center, we know this is job creating, but we also know the people who work here want a great city to be in and want to contribute to a quality of life and build the great events program and where there is a gap, where people are struggling, you have benny hang with his wife to contribute to great hospitals, special programs and help me in education. this is what kilroy and benny hop do to be great leaders in our city. it's fun for all the right reasons. look at building, you see engineering suggesting that they can building a lead platinum building in the center of our town and continue as i go to other countries, i can brag about, not necessarily the 27 cranes that are up because some of the other countries have more cranes that we do. but we ca

, mr. president, for visiting that great city and helping its people begin to heal with your inspiring words that made a huge difference. it's been said recently that you don't mess with boston. as someone who grew up there, i would like to echo that sentiment. it's really simple, if you pick on a city, don't choose one where nine out of ten people are related to a cop. don't do it. it's stupid. and that includes myself. i have one more thing to mention before i go. everyone's obsessed with washington these days. you all saw how you went crazy for "house of cards" "homeland" and hollywood can't get enough of your world. well, tonight, i'm excited to announce that turner broadcasting is going to make a major television mini series about the big power players here in washington. they just finished the casting and i would like to announce who is going to play who. vice president joe biden is going to be played by bob barker. former white house adviser, david axelrod will be played by higm from magnum pi. representative paul ryan will be played by mr. bean. senator chuck schumer will be pl
speaker was mayor of this great city from 2003, to 2011 and his support was crucial to its success. and he is also a proud native san franciscoan who grew up with the appreciation for the exporatorium and the role of education in our civic life. >> i would like to introduce newsom who is a passionate for transforming that into the future of our society and works tirelessly behind the scenes to be sure that we are standing where we are today. and first, i can't help myself because i love the fact that nikki heart is part of this and you don't get a chance to quote people from the grateful dead. but it was not mixky who said this, but he may claim credit. but it was jerry garcia who said that you don't want to be the best of the best you want to be the only one that does what you do. >> i think of that quote in the context of today. this is unique in every capacity. [ applause ] this is special in every way. and you heat our heart out and it does not exist anywhere else not only in this state or in the state or the rest of the world. mr. mayor, congratulations, mr. president, the city attorn

to visit china as part of an exchange program through the council of the great city schools and the foundation for cultural exchange who are exploring the partnership with our schools and chinese schools. i was one of five soupers from the united states who traveled to eye that to tour schools and experience their educational system. i was able to travel to five different cities. i visited the shanghai middle school, the foreign affairs school. i also visited the foreign languages school. and i was also able to do something very dear to my heart -- see the cultural arts in china. we attended an opera in the beijing opera house. we also had a tour of the chinese national theater. part of the reason for my visit is exploring opportunities for our students and teachers to have exchange opportunities in china and our hosts were most appreciative when i was able to explain the deep value that we have in san francisco public schools for languages and language emersion programs. they're looking forward to having their teachers come visit us as much as we are about visiting

's going to continue being great. many of you know i work hard for the city. i have always worked hard for the st e but one of the reasons i do is because so many others work so hard for the city. i can't see more reflected for the city. the factor why we are a number of world destinations to come to whether it paris or china, the golden gate park, the legion of honor, this very exhibit that we are doing now with the girl with the pearl earning is just drawing wonderful crowds. last year, it drew 1.6 million visitors. that's an incredible number. then to add to that, both museums combined together service over 250,000 children and families. this is an incredible part of what our city is. i know that you know i have been working hard to attract different businesses, create more jobs in the city, provide more housing, all in an effort to make the city more successful but i will always say, that as people like you and the board of trustees that provide us with a reason why the work hard to keep this city great as an international city to make sure we do all the things because arts, oftent
the city is doing so well which is great, that's also a positive thing when the economy recovers. unfortunately one of the down sides of that our city becomes more expensive and that rent goes up. ~ and i think all of us have heard it from our tenants in our district. and i want to be really careful in saying that i think when people have attacked tic as an option, that we're not attacking the people who want to own homes in the city. we're just attacking the solution to home -- that solution to homeownership, that we would prefer that people who want to become homeowners, they didn't have to go to the rent controlled housing stock to become homeowners. we want to find another pathway. one of that of course is more housing production, but also housing production that is affordable to residents in the city. and i am guilty of that, as many of our colleagues are of supporting, you know, luxury developments in the city that doesn't address that concern. but i think that we have to figure out really a more realistic solution in terms of what homeownership means that's affordable to o
are to a great city like san francisco, to the fan--base but also to the residents as well as to neighborhoods and the businesses events like the blue angels and like the fleet week, and we can't do without because when they do decide that they can't be here for any reason, there is a real heavy breathing that goes on, and that certainly is something that i felt. but that means that i'm as enthusiastic about the america's cup because that will definitely be a strong filler in. but i am absolutely thrilled and enthusiastic about our super bowl bid. and it will be a great thing for us to do, and it brings as daniel said, all of the elements of our bay area together, the cities and the corporations and the neighborhoods and the fan base and it has that over tone that i love about what the nfl will do, with us, with the proceeds of this wonderful event. you know, i have had a chance and i know that all of you have had a chance to relive the excitement of the super bowl and as i told coach severt and steve young just now in my office i paced five yards back in my office all day long and at home. ju
for our cities, great transit access, dynamic mixed urban centers, a place for innovation and inspiration. we truly believed that over two decades ago when we started this. within one block of this transit center, there are 4 office buildings under construction, about to begin construction and taken together with today's announcements, i think it's safe to say our bet was confident. this new transit center is only the beginning of what will be happening in blocks surrounding this site. last year the board of supervisors an approved the plan for an area around downtown strans san francisco to be the center of our region to go to right way, responsibly, providing jobs and embracing existing transit services as well as our future high speed rail and respecting today's resources and climate challenges. we have to realize the way to grow in the future is to accommodate jobs so people can use public transit, walking and bicycling to get around. a new and large part of what it's all about is this new transit center, public amenities and private buildings expect to generate at least 25,000 job y
and certainly katie's had that great collaboration already with our key agencies in the city. so with that, i would like to introduce our appointie who we will swear in tomorrow and have that done in haste so we can get on with the production of the city. may i introduce katie tang. [ applause ] >> good morning, everyone. i guess the suspense is over now. i want to thank everyone for being here today. all the community members, members of the city family, members of the board standing behind me, my parents. my partner justin, but i especially want to thank mayor lee forgiving me the opportunity to represent the district 4. i also have to be completely honest here. this is a very bitter sweet moment for me, as someone who has lived in district 4 for over 20 years, i'm happy to represent the district that i grew up in, but on the other hand as a district 4 resident i'm sad to see supervisor chu leave as my supervisor. everyone says that work is work and you have to separate your personal life from your work life. for me especially in the past five years, work is very personal . when i first st
the next century, other explorers revealed the amazing variety of new-world civilizations. a great city, teotihuacan, dominated the basin of mexico. atop a hill in the valley of oaxaca, sits monte alban, the royal center of a mighty kingdom. and in the forests and jungles of guatemala, maya city states once reigned over thousands of square miles. this is mesoamerica. at about a.d. 700, three great civilizations had emerged here. the realms of the maya. the power of the great city of teotihuacan. the zapotec kingdom of monte alban. for many scholars the differences between new and old-world civilizations suggested an independent course of history -- that each evolved on its own. this led to another and deeper insight -- beneath these differences may lie a grand and universal similarity, a parallel course of human evolution throughout the world. we now know that all humans once lived nomadic lives. we gathered wild plants and followed the migrations of animals. our lives were lived in small bands. everything was shared. no one had more power or wealth then anyone else. 10,000 years ago, p
. of course it is. it's a great american city. but that it is doing so under a kind of armed guard. the police presence here is very strong on the streets. in fact, several blocks behind me there where the finishing line of the boston marathon was, where those bombs went off, they're still blocked off. it's an active crime scene back there. and the presence of the uniformed military personnel patrolling the streets of a great american city. it's a different feel here. but for most people here and around the country, it was the emotions today. flags at half staff. and here in boston, mourning the dead, supporting the survivors, celebrating those life-saving heroes who did so much. they are the focus now that three dead, 8-year-old martin richard, a little boy who loved baseball, was at the finish line to cheer on the runners with his family. 29-year-old krystle campbell and a chinese exchange student whose family asked her name to remain private. they're the focus. as well as the investigation on who killed them. and for that, abc's brian ross joins us. brian, what do they know? >> good evening
